Artist makes name for himself with affectionate Albany animations

Some say the Capital Region has it all - from winter activities to horse racing to concerts. Yet, the area also has its detractors. In fact, they see the area as limiting. You've heard the phrase "Small-bany". However, one area man has a zeal for the area -- and is making that known through a series of short animations. His name is Jordan McClendon.
McClendon actually grew up in Poughkeepsie. He attended Sage College of Albany and now embraces the area.
He verbalizes his appreciation for the place through his short animations.
The shorts are getting lots of attention. It's quite an accomplishment for someone who works as a graphic artist and picked up animation on the side while the baby is napping.
McClendon says other shorts of the city are on the way. He's hoping they bring back memories and reinvestment in the beauty of the area.
